Advances in 2D Materials for Energy Storage: Batteries and Supercapacitors

About this Research Topic

Nowadays, major concerns are originating from a swiftly rising global energy demand and their negative impacts on the environment in the form of pollution and global warming. Therefore, it is necessary to take action now and give attention to finding alternatives to our current fossil fuel based economy. It is generally believed that a long-term sustainable source of energy is only renewable energy. Thus, efficient renewable energy management is required for sustainable development, and energy storage is expected to play a key role in this process in a near future. This Research Topic will cover the state of developments in two-dimensional materials for energy storage, with a focus on batteries and supercapacitors for current and future applications in transportation, commercial, electronics, aerospace, biomedical, and other important fields.

Two-dimensional (2D) materials exhibit extraordinary properties such as large surface area, good electronic conductivity, excellent electrochemical properties, and good chemical, electrochemical, and thermal stabilities that are promising for batteries and supercapacitors. In this Research Topic, we discuss the recent advancements in the field of 2D materials including graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, phosphorene, and their composites for high‐performance batteries and supercapacitors. Emphasis is given to the physical and chemical properties of 2D materials which can be effectively tuned through different strategies, such as controlling dimensions, the crystallographic structure, and defects, or doping with heteroatoms. This flexibility facilitates the design of 2D materials for dedicated applications in the field of energy storage. This special issue provides new understandings of 2D materials in energy storage applications which might be used to accelerate the realization of future energy plans in storage devices.

This Research Topic explores how 2D materials are being used to create new, more efficient industrial energy products and devices. Additionally, it covers a comparison of a variety of 2D materials, showing how the properties of a range of these materials make them beneficial for specific energy applications.
